Make a Wish!

Happy Monday everyone... Today I have a watercolor card for the Simon Says Stamps Something New Wednesday Challenge. 

This is the fun set from the Alley Way Stamps called Tickle Me Happy .. This set is full of feathers and a few fun sentiments for many occasions.

I wanted to create a Masculine card so I chose to use a neutral palette. The stamp set & the watercolor set I used are new to me and I guess you could say so is this loose technique.. even though it was a happy accident.

I stamped the feather onto a piece of watercolor paper using some Black Soot Distress ink and then I colored it in with my Windsor & Newton watercolors in various shades of browns. For the black I just pulled some of the Distress ink line in.

I was trying to make a light background around the image and that's when things got away from me.. at first I wasn't too sure about it, but then I went with it and added some additional splatters. I stamped the sentiment using the same Black Soot ink. 

Don't forget to stop by the Alley Way stamps blog for your chance to win a free set.. All month long each Design team member will be giving a set away as well. And you can link up with your creations using the Alley way Stamps products for another chance to win.
